What can I do to make sure the rice Krispies treat cake doesn’t stick to the bundt pan?

Make sure you use non-stick spray to coat the inside of the Bundt pan before adding the rice krispie mixture to the pan. I also find it helpful to lightly spray your hands before pressing the rice krispie mixture into the pan. Double non-stick protection!

What is the best way to cute the Rice Krispies Treats Wreath Cake?

Over time, I realized the best knife to use is a serrated knife. It will cut through the cake easily and leave clean, nice, uniform slices.

Servings 10 people

Ingredients
  

  • 7 Cups Mini Marshmallows
  • 6 Cups Rice Krispies Cereal
  • 1 Cup Powdered Sugar
  • 3 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter
  • 2 Tablespoons Milk
  • ½ Teaspoon Green Gel Food Dye
  • Christmas Sprinkles
  • Gold Sugar Sprinkles

Items Needed

  • Basic Bundt Pan
  • Mixing Bowl
  • Metal Stirring Utensil
  • Non-Stick Spray

Instructions
 

  • Spray an average sized bundt pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the marshmallows and butter. Microwave on high for 2 minutes or until the marshmallows start to expand.
  • Stir and microwave again if marshmallows are lumpy. You want it to be smooth and creamy.
  • Add the green food dye and stir until no color streaks appear.
  • Add the rice krispies and stir until well combined.
  • Scoop the rice krispies into the prepared pan and press down firmly so that the top is flat and even.
  • Allow to sit for 4 hours or until firm and set. Invert onto a serving tray or plate.
  • In a small bowl, combine the powdered sugar and milk. Stir until combined.
  • Drizzle over the top middle of the wreath.
  • Top with both sprinkles and enjoy!

Notes

Tips:
  • Spray non-stick spray on your hands before pressing the mixture into the pan. This will keep it from sticking to your hands and making a mess.
  • Be sure to press the ingredients down firmly so the rounded top of the wreath will be even. The same goes for the flat bottom portion of the wreath. Make sure it’s even before leaving it to dry so it will sit flat and even.
  • If your mixture seems too gooey, add more cereal, ½ cup at a time.
  • If your mixture seems too dry, melt and color a bit more marshmallow and add it to the mix.
  • Work quickly, if possible, as the marshmallow starts to harden pretty quickly when the cereal is introduced.
  • Use a metal spoon to stir the mixture for an easier time. Rubber spatulas aren’t strong enough to stir the mixture well.
  • I just used a basic Walmart brand for the green gel food dye.
  • If your treats won’t sit up, it’s likely you used too much butter.
